It was a horrible place to work with horrible manager, supervisors. Manager and supervisors were so fake! It was a very unsecured work place.
Shipper (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 February 2018
It was kind of busy and fast pace work place but horrible management, horrible supervisors! New ideas how to do the work everyday but nothing ever worked! It just made workers confused and caused more mess and mistakes! Manager and supervisors were faking! They pretended to be nice and carefulness to workers but deep down they were horrible!!! They did not treat workers fairly!!! It was a very unsecured work place! I ended up had to find another job because you would never know when will you become a permanent employee or when will you loose your job there. Most of people were okay but some people were bad!
Working at Grainger is fast paced, and (at times) demanding. They offer in job training and work around college schedules. Management is serious about employee feedback. The hardest part of the job is that the management can be extremely micromanaging when corresponding with customers. The most ejoyable part of the job is that the customers are usually contractors, so they usually already know a great deal about how to do their jobs, and are just looking for Grainger to provide a solution.
Inventory Control Analyst (SAP) (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 February 2018
Excellent Salary, Fast paced environment. My friend got me a job here. I was making less than market before I started with AGI. I now make more for Monday to Friday job. It’s easier to get promoted if you are working Smart. They encourage you to work independently and give you chance to make your own decisions. Leaders are almost never around so lots of opportunity for …..
Good salary and benefits, mostly good people
Company unable to roll out new compensation package for sellers.
Overstock Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 January 2018
I had a blast working there. Unfortunately they went through a great many managers and the feel became very insecure. I wanted to feel more secure about my future so, as many others, I left to seek better employment.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – 12 January 2018
I helped out my Uncle for the Inventory weekend twice so I have only actually worked here for 6 days, therefore I feel I can't actually provide the best input. But from those 6 days everyone was very friendly, lunch was supplied to us, and I felt for a kid who was just working a weekend I got paid fairly well.

Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 November 2017
storied company beginning a major change to embrace e commerce as opposed to retail storefronts and a traditional methodology. Company seems to have a hi degree of integrity towards clients & employees. Definitely will be in a state of flux which will result in a stronger culture & entity. Another company trying to deal with the forces of governments intent on driving business out of canada
Decent place to work if you can avoid the office politics
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2017
Typical day involes managing multiple requests for a board range of products. Improved my time management skills, learned about various applications for products, increased knowledge of the MRO market. Senior management is never seen and seems to be more about self preservation than the overall well being of the business. Owner by Grainger who does not understand the Canadian market place
Une journée chez Acklands Grainger pour ma part consistait à faire du "shipping" c'est-à-dire place les commandes et les expédier aux fournisseurs avec l'aide de mes collègues qui m'aidait s'il y avait un petit problème.
